Many of you may have received the same E-mail I did. For those of you who didn't, a public service announcement. Robin of Tri To End Homelessness is one of ten finalists in the Toyota "Engines of Change" contest. As many of you may already know, Robin and her sister spent 2007 raising funds for a group that supports the homeless. In conjunction with that fundraising, they trained for and completed an Olympic distance race with the goal of improving their PRs.
While at the Toyota site, I noticed a familiar jersey. Without taking anything away from Robin, I would be remiss if I failed to mention a member of Team D3 Multisport is also a finalist. Julia Purrington is a successful triathlete and active mom. She recently started a group called Tri Moms focused on healthy families. Like so many others, she tries to share her love of triathlon. All while raising a family and training.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
